Agility in a Bottle! (5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Wondrous item, rarity varies (requires attunement)

Design Note: The following is a series of seperate items, comparable to the Belts of Giant Strength. However, instead of increasing Strength, these items increase Dexterity. Due to the way D&D 5e is made, a higher strength is only especially useful for certain characters while increasing dexterity is incredibly powerful for almost any character. To account for this, the relative rarity of the creatures involved in the creation processes of these items, and the process itself, these items are rarer. Additionally, some of these items use the Unique Item Rarity homebrew ruleset. If you don't use that ruleset, they can be Legendary rarity instead.

Lightning in a Bottle

Tsunami in a Bottle

Wildfire in a Bottle
The jar attached to this ornate ruby-encrusted necklace has a glowing bird within it that vaguely resembles a wildfire trying to escape it. Hidden in the flames is a tiny black oval-shaped rock, smooth and glowing hot. In reality, it's the captured remains of a deceased Phoenix and its egg. As part of the process involved in making this item, the soul of the Phoenix is bound to it, and it can't come back to life.
Tempest in a Bottle
The jar attached to this ornate diamond-encrusted necklace has a black, swirling storm cloud filling it to the brim, trying to escape it.

As part of the process involved in making this item, the soul of the Tempest is bound to it, and it can't come back to life.
